If One should want to hold the reign of power, whatever 'image' one has the 'word', should it not be a pleasure.....than a burden?

Need a lEAder lock his door in his own kingdom?
Should the One not show the self?
Remain in the shadows?

Did your father, mother hide in the shadows of authority?
Now that it is clear who pulls your strings.
Whether you pluck an electric guitar or a harp, not haarp, it's not Right until it's in the right vibe with yourself or your neighbor.

The Great Dictator, an excellent film, the final speech, as this scene is known, is a comentary over the human condition and fascism. A DEFINITE must have, so go download a copy. Lately our democracy appears more and more as a false fascade to cover the fact that we are victims of a collective fascism where the ultra rich are in control. Fascist societies are controlled by fear and impose misery, and always have an enemy to fight. They limit access of the non priveledged to basic social services such as health and education. Welcome to the third world, America!
Metropolis by Fritz Lang also is quite prophetic about our modern society also, and comes highly recommended.

You guys want to hear something funny.

This is actually a true story.

My Mother has a friend.

A friend of the family.

His name is Michael.

He sais he is an Angle or rather Angel.

I didn't doubt him cause I just knew he was right.

It wasn't strange, just a confirmation of sorts.

"I" to "I".

He works out with my Mother in the pool to keep each other in shape and company.

It's sweet to watch.
and it was/Is good.
No panky, just companionship.

The funny part is that he played the role of the 'young' Superman in the original movie lol.

Anyhow, he just called.
We just spoke.
He's coming Over.

Later folks.

It does not matter, the ones with those characteristics will rise. They will get powerful. They will get corrupted.



I tend to have a different view. As this thread illustrates, the world has been largely run by this same group - and their heirs - since then. This 'secret power' - also referred to by Kennedy - has dominated and corrupted politics, not just in US but in many countries, Europe comes to mind, for example. Since they are the ones who pull the strings, the 'good' people will rarely, if ever, rise to positions of authority, because they would not serve the interests of those secretly in charge. So they will be sidelined, held back. Thus we have a bunch of totally corrupt, selfish and ruthless politicians by design, not, I believe, by nature.

In fact, I would say that the majority of humans are pretty amazing. These guys have thrown everything at us, and still are (TSA, for example), they've brow beaten us, corrupted our youth, ruined our culture, demolished decent social values, broken down the family, impoverished us with lethal taxes, they've murdered millions of us in unwanted wars, they've poisoned us, bombarded us with radiation, EMF wages, sprayed poison in our air, drugged us and abused us in every possible way - and yet - most ordinary people are still decent, still have a capacity to love and care about others, still aspire to an end to this insanity, still want a world of peace, love, abundance and plenty.

I think we are pretty amazing, and it's time we took back our world and created it as we want it to be.




There is no way around that -- it is our nature, and so, there is no alternative but to always be mindful of who, when and where the power tripping is happening, the system is getting skewed by those to their advantage; etc. etc. and then do something to stop it or curb it -- over, and over, and over again.


I think it is our nature to care about one another and live in peace, but these people have held the power for so long, we believe the world they have created reflects humanity as a whole. I no longer believe that to be the case.



We will never be free of this scourge on our personality and character. We will always be fighting this fight.

We will always need the Charlie Chaplins in this world to do that battle for us or at least to stir us to action; ever once more.


I believe we can and will be free of them. Once we are united, their power begins to evaporate. We are much, much stronger than they want us to believe.

Even more shocking, however, is the claim that:


** 41st US President George H. W. Bush Was SS Nazi Spy George H. Scherf(f), Jr. **


This claim was made in the deathbed confession of Otto Skorzeny, Hitler's bodyguard & SS spy/assassin, who came to the US after the war under the US Project Paperclip.

According to Otto, young George H. Scherf(f), Jr. was trained as a spy & sent to America to work for Adolph Hitler. He was given false identification & adopted by Prescott Sheldon Bush as his “son”, George Herbert Walker Bush.

His real father, George H. Scherf(f) Sr., was Dr. Nikola Tesla’s German born, illegal immigrant, assistant & accountant.

Skorzeny and George H. W. Bush were instrumental in merging Nazi (SS) Intelligence with the OSI to form the CIA with "Wild Bill" Donovan & Allen Dulles. These guys were also part of CIA mind control experiments such as MK-ULTRA.

George H. Scherf(f), Jr. became the 41st President of the United States as GHW Bush.

What you are about to read is another step beyond research pioneered in the early 90's by author/historian Webster Tarpley, based largely on deathbed “clues” provided by former Hitler bodyguard Otto Skorzeny and his box of photographs.

Since Skorzeny’s death in 1999, the various leads he provided have been followed up and tend to support what, at first blush, would appear to be the unbelievable rantings of an embittered old man.

What remains constant, as we pore through publicly available official records, private correspondence, memoirs, newspaper articles, photos and other “clues”, is that Bush family records (the ones that exist) are a puzzle palace of inconsistencies and curiosities.

Since it is a congressionally established fact that Prescott Bush was in business with the Nazis during WWII, we can safely say that the Bush/Nazi connection existed.

Who are the Bushes?

How did they get connected with the Nazis?

Is the connection still alive through US presidents George H.W. Bush & George W. Bush?

The answers are not as literal as we would like them to be. But we have the testimony of Otto Skorzeny and his photos, so, here we go . . . the first installment of an investigation that points to a curious conclusion:


*** The “Bush” family was created to destroy America. ***


April 2007 Idaho Observer - Deathbed Confession & Photos Support Claim That 41st US President George H. W. Bush Was Actually SS Nazi Spy George H. Scherf(f) Jr.

My mind exploded after reading this post and sources. Thanks for sharing this information.
I think the fact that they never found Hitler's body was a good indicator that he went under some kind of witness protection program
courtesy of CIA of course.

In regards to OP- Charlie Chaplin was one of the greatest and most influential actors of his time. Weird to see him speak, I only mostly ever watched his silent films. It was weird watching this one. Has anyone else noticed that he didn't blink (or barely did?). He sounded very passionate. The movie looks like a spoof of the Nazi dictatorship, so I am assuming it's inspired by true stories. Very cool... gonna go look for the whole film to watch.

Thats why it is important not to have the same people and the same families in power year after year as they become corrupt we need them out and fresh blood in power.

Ask him to quit lolli-gagging in the pool and get some stuff done, can't he see we need some help or is he one of those "fallen" types?

Excellent scene from a great movie.
Definitely a must see. I am a huge Chaplin fan, I've loved his movies since I was a kid.
Charlie was a comedic genius, but always had a sense of sadness in his movies. If you've never seen any of his work, I would recommend watching a few of his films. "The Great Dictator" of course, and the wonderful "City Lights"

If you'd like to learn more about him, I suggest the film "Chaplin" that came out in the late 80's. It starred Robert Downey Jr. He did an astounding job as Chaplin. There's a scene where Chaplin is watching footage of Hitler in preparation for the filming of "The Great Dictator". He tells his assistant..."I know this man" Charlie new exactly what Hitler was up to, and saw the consequences of appeasement.

Here's a vid from YouTube that has a snippet of the real Chaplin speech "vs" Downey Jr's version. Pretty cool!

Just an FYI Perseus, being an avid Superman fan, in both comics and movies and TV, the actor that played the young Superman in the original movie was Jeff East. His name isn't Michael.

There are many mysteries out there and I'm not going to discount off-hand anyone's belief that angels do visit us. I am convinced I met one in Syracuse, NY in the early 90's, but that's a whole other story.

I'm just saying be careful. Many people make false claims for many reasons, not all of which are honorable.

Somehow I don't find the global rule of communism an inspiring alternative to Federal corporatism. I would rather have a constitutional republic with individual rights and free markets; not global controlled markets.

Fascism has swept America and this Generation isn't fighting it.

Our military boys can't even keep a 6mm plastic pellet gun in their barracks without getting threatened to be thrown out of our military.

Can you imagine that?

I remember carrying a AK-47 with a crate of 1,000 rounds down the fire escape before a surprise inspection (they tipped us off knowing we were loaded for bear). The 1 guy that got caught they made an example of and he got booted out from our armed services. He was a specialist on the F-117.

They've cracked down on our poor military boys now they can't even own a 6mm plastic bb gun....a kitchen knife...they better not have them now either.

This mans words speak true to America now, unless this Generation stands against the Fascist State....sadly they won't. They can't. They need a job. Chappy's words are relegated to the history books now.

They'll spare no expense replacing those who demand their Liberty and replace them with some smuck who'll be enslaved and give up his Liberty.

Interesting he speaks like a new ager, regarding humanity and keeping love in our heart, pursuing truth, and not allowing greed to overcome what we all want. Thank you OP for posting this. Another example as why I not some rambling idiot. That I see with both my eyes what this world is. That I want nothing but everyone to be happy, without undue influence on their freedoms. And while there may be laws to protect ourselves from non do-gooders that those laws have been subverted by the same people we wish to protect ourselves from...the corrupt and greedy.

Charlie Chaplin was a far left wing political activist and perhaps even a communist. He felt forced to leave America in the 1950's during the McCarthy era because he feared being arrested. This video is in my opinion total crap, leftwing idealistic crap, meaningless crap. You may write me directly for more discussion at Robert48911(at)Gmail(dot)com



You might as well heed those warnings. There will be untold amount of suffering and then will be left with only ourselves, to rebuild a new world from the ruins. Nothing matters more than understanding and caring for one another. We will be left with so little that reevaluating our lifestyles (if any kind of style will be possible except our strive of survival) will be the ONLY option. We will all wish we could take heed in the early warnings. We have just started to witness the dark road that unfolds itself in front of our eyes. It is coming slowly because God has love for humanity and wishes we can still change before we have to suffer for our actions, but we will be relentless in every twist and turn of our fates until we have been left with no OTHER option.
Man is an animal, yet intelligent but still an animal.
